This book is a nice easy read but in my opinion not worthy of 5 stars. I wondered at times if I was reading a different book to all the other reviewers. I'm not going to recap the story as many have already done so. When I read the author's note at the end I could see that she had put a lot of herself into the book and without doubt I sympathised with what she'd been through. The problems I had were with Jayne herself who I found it hard to warm to, there were times that I just wanted to shake her! I also think that the book needed more thorough editing, there were mistakes throughout and at times poor language choices and the over use of coarse words detracted rather than added to my enjoyment of the story. Finally believe me I'm a weeper but this book did not stir any emotion in me and not one tear was shed.

A book of hope, love, friendship, grief and moving on. The character of Jayne was perfectly described. I just loved this book. It made me feel so many emotions whilst reading it
Being a woman of a certain age who has been with her husband for 26 years there were also bits that made me giggle and which I could really identify with.
Highly recommended read but be warned this is an emotional rollercoaster. I laughed, I smiled and I cried.

From the minute you pick up a Tracie Podger book you can't put it down until you've finished it. This book was amazing just like all of her other books. 5 stars isn't enough. Would definitely recommend this book you won't be disappointed.

A brutally honest book about a woman who suffers from depression. A very well written book about a sensitive topic.

If you only read a couple of books this year, make sure this is one of them.
Jayne is an everyday middle aged woman. Married with two children and a nice house. To the outside world it probably seems her life is great but looks can be deceiving. Jaynes marriage is far from happy, one day to escape from it all, she goes on a holiday with her good friend Carla. During her idyllic holiday she meets Stefan. She strikes up a friendship with him that continues through e-mails after she returns home. Things get worse at home and the sham of a marriage comes to an end. Jayne and Stefan's 'virtual affair' continues but events take a tragic turn for Jayne, over and over. Will this story have a HEA?
The character of Jayne called out to me, I identified with her in many ways as I'm sure a lot of other readers will. The emotion that pours from this book is real and honest and raw. In places, I wanted to reach into the book and hug Jayne, stroke her hair and just reassure her. Other times, I wanted to give her a damn good shaking. And don't even get me started on what I wanted to do to Michael!! To me, the physical reaction you have to a story and its characters is the true test of it and my reactions when reading this were through the roof. It was a heart-wrenching, honest, put you through the wringer, humdinger of a book and one that will stay in my thoughts always.

Wow - what an emotional, inspiring, gut wrenching story this was.Really well written, I am so loving the writing of Tracie at the moment, as this is only my third book I have read by her but I have enjoyed each one immensely.

Jayne is a 45 year old, mother of two grown children and in a loveless marriage to Micheal, he treats her terribly, takes her for granted and basically wants nothing much to do with her. Carla her best friend suggests a holiday in the Maldives to cheer them both up and even though Jayne is reluctant at first, she agrees and off they go. There she meet a man called Stefan and they make friends and keep that friendship up once they return home via email. This encourages Jayne's self esteem and things start to look up. Then one day she is dealt the worse news ever and her whole world implodes and she sinks into a depression like no other. From that moment on she can either sink or swim.
How I felt for this lady, her pain was my pain, and it was really traumatic in some ways reading this but in other ways very cathartic, it is the most wonderful story that should be read. I think as well it is pretty obvious as you go along that the author has taken her own experiences and invested them into this story and that made me think really hard about depression and it's effects on your everyday life and welfare.
A deeply moving book of discovery and hope and of course deep despair at times and I loved every word. This book should be read by all, because we all may know someone who has or is going through what Jayne was, it might be us one day and that hits close to home. An amazing story not to be missed !!

I read this book in one sitting, and it has shot to the top of my favourite books read in 2016 thus far. What truly makes this book special is not the story, the characters, or the setting. What makes it special is the fact that the author has put so much of her own story into its pages, bearing her very soul to the readers. I take my hat off to her for being brave enough to do this.

The book itself is, I believe, one of two halves. The first half of the book concentrates on Jayne's quest to break free from a life of drudgery, heartache and missed opportunities. She has been put down so much by her husband since they married that she can't remember at times what she was like as a person. She has to battle against the life she knows as a wife in order to find the woman she knows she can be. She can finally see a much happier future for herself.

The second half of the book is the most heartbreaking tale I have read for a while, moreso because I realised while reading that a lot of it was based on real life events. What happens to Jayne is something I wouldn't wish on anyone. The happiness she is starting to believe she can have is taken from her in an instant. The aftermath of this event brings her lower than she has ever been before, and getting her life back is a long hard struggle.

Throughout the book the female characters are portrayed as strong people, but they have to deal with circumstances beyond their control. The friendships between the female characters in particular is what makes the book so good at times. There are also family connections which are difficult to understand, and certain actions which are only explained later in the story.

When all is said and done, family is for life.
